Adriana Salazar Velez

Project Director

Adriana Salazar is a Colombian visual artist/researcher based in Mexico City. Her work has focused on how the boundaries between life and death, nature and artifice, and the human and non-human become unclear when situated in specific, often contested contexts. She has exhibited her projects in venues such as CA2M (Spain), Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain (France), the Carrillo Gil Art Museum (Mexico), Havremagasinet (Sweden), OCMA (USA), and Pratt Institute (USA). Her work is part of public collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (MARCO), the Bank of the Republic of Colombia’s Art Collection, and UCR ArtsBlock (California). She holds a BFA Honors degree from the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University of Bogota, a Magna Cum Laude MFA degree in Philosophy from the Javeriana University of Bogota, and a PHD degree in Art and Design from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, Mexico City). Adriana has worked as a lecturer at the Javeriana and Jorge Tadeo Lozano universities in Bogota. She has also contributed as a writer in journals such as Islario (Mexico), Errata# (Colombia), and OAR (Oxford University).
